History And Archeology Of Nagpur
British Rule

Lieutenant Bell of the Royal Scots was killed in the breach and two other officers were wounded. General Doveton who was in command of the Forces, desired to await the arrival of a siege train to effect the complete reduction of the city, but on the Arabs agreeing to march out with their property, families and arms, Mr. Jenkins allowed them to do so as the immediate acquisition of the city was important.   On the 6th January an engagement was drawn up reinstating Appa Sahib until the pleasure of the Governor-General was know on his agreeing to cede his territories in the Nerbudda vally, and his right in Berar, Gawilgarh, Surguja and Jashpur, to conduct his affairs according to the advice of the Resident, to give up such forts as might be demanded and to allow of the erection of military works on Sitabaldi. The Governor-General disapproved of the restoration of Appa Sahib to power but decided that the treaty must be confirmed.      The division of General Doveton proceeded westward to help in taking the forts in the territory ceded by Holkar, and in the pursuit of the Peshwa. No sooner had General Doveton’s troops left Nagpur than Appa Sahib renewed his intrigues, raised the Gonds, and sent secret instructions to the Killedars or castellans not to surrender the forts, which they were holding, to the English; and finally he applied for assistance to Baji Rao. Ever within a day’s march of the capital the wild Gonds were burning Makardhokra, Amgaon, and other villages belonging to Beka Bai, the Dowager Queen, the Raja’s political opponent. He sent message for helps to the Peshwa and arranged for his own escape to Chanda. At this time also his participation in the murder of his cousin had become known. Sir R. Junking now arrested the Raja and it was determined that he should be confined for life in Hindustan. He was sent under escort towards Allahabad, but on the road he managed to corrupt his guard, and escaped in the dress of a sepoy. He filed to the Mahadeo hills, where he was joined by Chitu, the last of the Pindari leaders. He ultimately escaped, first to Asirgarh and then to Upper India, and died in Rajutana in 1860.  On the final deposition of Appa Sahib a maternal grandchild of Raghuji 2 was adopted by the wide was of his grandfather. He took the name of Bhonsla, and was recognized as Raja Raghuji III, on the same terms as were granted to Appa Sahib in 1816. A Regency was established, at the head of which was the Baka Bai, widow of the second Raghuji. She had the care of the young Raja’s person but the Resident superintended and administered every department of the State through officers appointed by himself.
